For anyone who reads this, I want you to keep reading. Middle school for me made me very depressed, so my mom gave me these bible verses, and had me carry them with me everywhere. Whenever I felt sad, or doing something stupid, I would read these cards:

Matthew 11:28,
Come to me all you who a weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Psalm 23:4
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil. For thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

Jeremiah 29:11
"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you, and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope, and a future."

These are only a few, but I know that they can work. They worked for me, and they worked for my friend. Remember that God loves you, and he has a purpose for you!

Do you know what 💗tho? It's the fact that the ones who care the most are always the loneliest. The ones who laugh the most are always crying on the inside. I mean ever since the beginning of time, I've been the one to ALWAYS help and talk to literally anyone who might need help. But who's there for me? no one. And I should tell my parents? believe me, I have.
So ever since this started, I have gone through some noticeable changes. I've started to chew my nails all the time, I bite my lips till they start to bleed like crazy, and everything I used to be good at, is now just another load.
My parents can notice it when I'm hiding a freaking chocolate bar in my room. Why can't they understand depression?
I even tried being vocal about it but it just never works. They said "you're too young for depression"
Ummm..... Is there supposed to be an age?? like I turn 18 and I'm suddenly prone to anxiety and Depression?
I mean idk maybe they're right. Maybe wanting to end my life is just a phase! Maybe self harmm is like an emo thing. It doesn't matter. Right????

Please, show them this. I know it is hard. But they will believe you. Trust me. It might feel like they don't understand, but they will. Trust me. Please get help, would you rather be ashamed or dead? Because that is how it might end up

Ps. Watch "It's a Wonderful Life"

I don’t know what to do. I don’t understand me, my parents dont understand me, and my friends expect me to be someone im not. I feel like i dont matter. I know that my problems are insignificant in comparison to the world, and in the long term, my life is meaningless. I think if i died id just disappear. I dont think people would really care. I need help, i dont know what to do. I havent cut myself or anything but i think about it a lot. I went from crying once a year to three times a week.

Thanks for reading this if you did.

What should i do?

So is it depression, or misery? You are a little depressed. Please get yourself some support now while you're still feeling up to getting out and carrying on with normal life. Do this and everything will be fine. Just tell people, especially those who care about you, what's going on. They care and can probably help, if only by listening and being supportive.

Just start the conversation with "I've been feeling unusually sad lately. Can we talk about it?" I wish you all good luck and this will end well for you, I promise.

So is it depression, or misery? You are extremely depressed. Get some help, now. Everything will be OK. I know what you're going through, and I know it hurts like nothing you've ever felt before. The sooner you get help, the sooner this hurt will end. Hang in there and get help quickly. P.S.: Depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain and NOT a character failing. Do not let anyone tell you differently.

So is it depression, or misery? You are definitely depressed. Friends alone aren't going to be able to help. It's time to get your parents involved. I know it's going to be hard to tell them, but if you do, the pain will end faster. You need professional help, and I mean this in the most positive way. Depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain and NOT a character failing. Do not let anyone tell you differently.

But... I can't tell my parents 'cause they don't give a 👮!

No problem! Like I said, if it makes even one person feel even a little better then I have done my job. I honestly have a little depression story of my own: I was going through this period of time where I would get in trouble and then just cry. I hated myself and my life and sometimes thought that people were better off without me. It did get better though and what helped was talking to my friends. Telling my friends that I was feeling this way and they were just so kind. I am not saying everyone's story will be like this but I am trying to say that you ARE NOT alone!!! I cannot even begin to imagine what all of you are going through. I know that one kind comment wont change the world, but I do know that it can make someone happier. I
